    have you looked into auction appraisal services near you? Or have you done a search for antique stove collectors on google - they may know.
  2. fhrjr2 fhrjr2, 6 years ago
    It has to have markings that you aren't mentioning.

    Never mind, I will double your money right now and I will research it. I might even throw in a rusty boy scout knife to boot.
  3. trubblemakr, 6 years ago
    lol well there arent any other markings on it ive gone all over it, i use it for making bread in so nah not gonna sell it just yet lol. ill look over it again, any ideas where to look? all i seen is glencoe series E 9 20
  4. fhrjr2 fhrjr2, 6 years ago
    glenco is a good start.

    Ok, I will triple your investment, throw in the rusty boy scout knife and a plug for the stove pipe. Don't worry about taking it apart I will see to it. If you are really fussy I will clean the chimney.
  5. fhrjr2 fhrjr2, 6 years ago
    I like old things and this is older than me by at least 10 or 15 years.
  6. fhrjr2 fhrjr2, 6 years ago
    I might throw in an HP printer! Don't pass this up.
  7. trubblemakr, 6 years ago
    lol ooh a printer. will it fit in the firebox? i had been offered 2200 for it 3 days after i got it home and assembled, frankly i doubt i could replace it for that tho . i saw what they wanted to restore old stoves and this one isnt in need of restoration . i did get another one the other day out of an abandoned farmhouse, its about 4 ft tall and round, all round inside woth firebricks. maybe ill get a pic up .
  8. fhrjr2 fhrjr2, 6 years ago
    I really think you shouldn't bother yourself researching it. I might be willing to go a bit more. Besides, who wants an old stove anyway? I am doing you a favor. Honest.
  9. trubblemakr, 6 years ago
    there ya go i posted the latest stove i found
  10. fhrjr2 fhrjr2, 6 years ago
    If you turned down 22 you may be sorry later. They run between 1500 & 2000 depending on the condition and whether they have the water reservoir and pie/warming ovens.

    Ok, maybe someone else is interested in the boyscout knife and printer. Gettin harder to make a buck every day.
  11. trubblemakr, 6 years ago
    it is complete. the firebox isnt warped , has the bun warmer up top all original, there were only 2 cracked pieces on the whole thing, i got em rewelded by a guy in town , it has all the orig vents as well as the bottom chrome cover thingy below the oven, and the original tray inside the oven . most stoves ive seen rarely are as complete . several people told me to load it up n take it out to british columbia n id get 7500 for it there. the guy that offered 2200 was from texas, it woulda cost him a pile to ship it there from where i am in canada , guess he figured id cover the shipping or drop the price to accomodate him.
  12. trubblemakr, 6 years ago
    the ovens thermostat works too and the glass isnt cracked or spoiled. i bake bread in it in the winter . so i know its a good unit
  13. fhrjr2 fhrjr2, 6 years ago
    I think before I loaded it up and went to British Columbia I would seriously research Glencoe cook stoves and what they are selling for. It is a wonderful stove but even wonderful has a price cap.
  14. trubblemakr, 6 years ago
    oh itll last, hes done plenty. to be honest he did sucha good job i cant even see where the cracks used to be anymore
  15. trubblemakr, 6 years ago
    the cracks were one ona vent, one of the lile arms had broken off, and another was on the bread warmer door, just an outline left where itd been now
  16. walksoftly walksoftly, 6 years ago
    @ sewingfool, I have welded plenty of cast over the years without problem, some pieces as small as a pound & some as large as a ton. Three things are required preparation, skill, & proper post cooling.
  17. walksoftly walksoftly, 6 years ago
    I recently had this guy from BC appraise a wood stove for me, he can supply info on it as well.
  18. fhrjr2 fhrjr2, 6 years ago
    You need to share with me where you picked up the term "bun warmer" . I can understand you calling something a "thingy" and listening to tales of where you can make a fortune. Where did you get "bun warmer"?
  19. trubblemakr, 6 years ago
    well when u made bread or pies or buns or even as you prepared dinners in old days, ppl often had fresh buns, and they kept em warm in the upper trays, not everyone had pie with meals but in them days and the term breaking bread etc everyone most likely had fresh hot buns with meals
    @ walksoftly. maybe send that guya pic of my stove and see if he has anything to say bout it or a site i can go look at . ty
  20. fhrjr2 fhrjr2, 6 years ago
    Obviously you didn't grow up with this type of living. There were no "buns", you had biscuits made in a cast iron skillet. Our family stove was used for an incubator when my uncle was born premature. We didn't have hospitals either, or electric. The warming oven had many uses, people seem to rename it to suit their need.

    You call it back in the old days, we refer to it as back home. Difference is having lived it.
  21. trubblemakr, 6 years ago
    well u grew up down there where its warm all the time up here it hits -40 u bet ppl had hot buns for supper lol :p
  22. fhrjr2 fhrjr2, 6 years ago
    You made another assumption. I didn't grow up down here where it is warm all the time. I grew up on a farm quite close to the Canadian border. There were no buns, just biscuits. You are the product of a different generation. You see the stove as a fun toy when you want to use it. The stove was all there was to us. If your stove could talk......and get you to listen, it would be a wealth of information.
  23. trubblemakr, 6 years ago
    well i grew up on a farm in northern manitoba , a tad farther up than the usa. was at my babas alot of the time n i remember her cooking on her woodstove, i got it working in here to remind me of the past and when i was growing up. plus it bakes alot better than my convection oven we had buns not biscuits, maybe you southerners had more biscuits , im probably a different generation yes, but i grew up with an outhouse n a woodstove , it was alot more primitive up north in the early 70s . my stove cant talk , i welded up its mouth, lol now if i found a way to make the old lady talk less id be set
  24. trubblemakr, 6 years ago
    u cant compare the us weather with canadas, its no comparison . you all are sheltered from true winter temperatures and really i dont think you have a clue what real winter is like . we used to go feed the cows in -65 weather , waited at the end of the gravel road for a school bus in the same weather
  25. trubblemakr, 6 years ago
    hmm well the welder guaranteed it, the thing about cast iron is it has to be poreheated i believe he told me , i cant remember . im not a welder . this stove had no cracks on any part that was structural or load bearing, so im not to concerned either way
  26. trubblemakr, 6 years ago
    preheated not poreheated lol
  27. walksoftly walksoftly, 6 years ago
    @sewingfool, I mean no disrespect to your Father, but what you are talking about is arc welding, using a nickel based rod. He is correct on heat & dissimilar metals expanding & contracting at different rates.
    The type of welding that I'm talking about is done with an oxy-acetylene torch, using pure cast rods & a powdered flux. This method is used exclusively by true wood stove restorers, with both materials being the same, they can heat & expand without issue.
    I base this on 30 years of welding experience, my first ten years I trained under a man who learnt his torch use from a blacksmith. We worked on all the cast projects that no one else would touch.
    As for the wood stove & it's upper cabinet, I've heard it called both. If you went around North America & talked to people they would all have different stories on many things a wood stove was used for & what it meant to them. Names & cooking styles vary with regions, so we can't say that everyone ate biscuits, or buns.
    As for me I prefer my biscuits fresh out of the oven this is my heritage based on a recipe that has been handed down 4 generations, so nothing is obvious.
  28. trubblemakr, 6 years ago
    hmm seems like a welding debate and a terminology fight lol . tomato tomoto it really doesnt matter if ya call a bun a biscuit or a bun , they are the same thing . i dont recall anyone even using the word biscuit up here unless its for carpentry.
  29. fhrjr2 fhrjr2, 6 years ago
    You are right it doesn't really matter. But even McDonalds in Canada knows the difference between a buttermilk biscuit and a bun.
  30. walksoftly walksoftly, 6 years ago
    Welding is like anything else be it a plumber, antique appraiser or dentist ask around get references, etc. etc. I've come to the conclusion that I can't trust what anyone is trying to sell me is giving me the correct info, so I research it ahead of time.
